从纯粹的角度来看，只有内部人才能拥有，安娜·索菲亚（Anna Sofia）记述了这些时刻以及她音乐中的更多内容。这位16岁的多伦多歌手，词曲作者和多元化乐器演奏家将叙事性流行音乐与经典的90年代少年电影的范围以及21世纪体裁弯曲的不确定性结合在一起。截止到2019年，独立播放量超过200万次，并获得了Ones To Watch，Lyrical Lemonade和Complexw的称赞，她称她为“非凡的新才华”，她将听众放在介绍性的2020 EP，自我意识B子这一世界的前排[Electric Feel / Republic Records]，以及她即将上演的全长首演。
她从小就开始讲这个故事。这位崭露头角的女歌手从三岁起就参加比赛跳舞，后来在社区活动，戏剧中和在她称之为故乡的滑雪胜地小镇蓝山周围唱歌。在四岁的时候，她开始上钢琴课，然后才开始学习夏威夷四弦琴和吉他。从皇后乐队（Queen）和埃尔顿·约翰（Elton John）到泰勒（Tyler），创作者，雷克斯·奥兰治县（Rex Orange County）和麦克德马可（Mac DeMarco）的所有人启发，她精心制作了自己的签名风格，植根于传统乐器中，包括吉他，鼓和贝斯。
在2019年，她开始与独立发行版《Meaner Girl》和《I Try》转头，然后与Republic Records达成交易。现在，她用单曲“ No Fun”介绍了自我意识的母狗。轻快的节奏和闪闪的琴键与不可抗拒的吟相撞-“没有乐趣，那是我所知道的唯一乐趣”。
House parties broken up by daybreak (instead of the cops).
The bliss of first love (and the agony of first heartbreak).
Through a pure perspective only an insider could possess, Anna Sofia chronicles these moments and so much more in her music. The 16-year-old Toronto singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist threads together narrative pop with the scope of a classic nineties teen flick and the unpredictability of 21stcentury genre-bending. Streamed over 2 million times independently as of 2019 and acclaimed by Ones To Watch, Lyrical Lemonade, and Complexwho dubbed her, “a prodigious new talent,”she places listeners in the front row of her world on the introductory 2020 EP, Self Aware Bitch[Electric Feel/Republic Records], and her forthcoming full-length debut.
“I write about what’s really happening to me,” she explains. “It’s girl drama, my friends liking guys, something that happened with me and a boy, house parties, and trying to just be myself. I didn’t hear a lot of other artists speaking this way about high school and growing up, so I wanted to tell my story.”
She began working towards telling this story as a child. The budding songstress went from competitive dancing since three-years-old to singing at community events, in plays, and around the sleepy ski resort town of Blue Mountain she calls home. At the age of four, she started piano lessons before eventually picking up ukulele and guitar. Inspired by everyone from Queen and Elton John to Tyler, the Creator, Rex Orange County, and Mac DeMarco, she carefully crafted a signature style of her own rooted in traditional instrumentation a la guitar, drums, and bass.
“Not all of the songs are love songs,” she says. “I’m writing about school life in a really personal way with authentic-sounding instruments.”
In 2019, she began turning heads with the indie releases “Meaner Girl” and “I Try” before landing a deal with Republic Records. Now, she introduces Self Aware Bitchwith the single “No Fun.” A shuffling beat and shimmery keys collide with an irresistible chant—“No fun, that’s the only fun I know”—backed by quirky, boisterous horns.
“I went to a party, and the song pretty much explains everything that happened that night,” she goes on. “There were kids breaking windows and all of this crazy stuff going down. The story shifts to the next day when you just want to chill at home all super tired.”
Meanwhile, “Self Aware Bitch” coasts along on hummable guitar punctuated by nostalgic vignettes of “people kissing in the stairwell,” “texting my momma,” and “lunch line down the block.”
It culminates on the chant, “Just call me a self aware bitch, sorry, at least I’m being honest, surrounded by the gossip, at least I say it loud.”
“I’m breaking with the trends,” she asserts. “There are so many people who want to change you. I’m not going to change for anyone. It’s about standing by who you are.”
In the end, Anna’s story will relate, because she actually lives this…
“I hope when people listen to me, they can get confidence in themselves,” she leaves off. “That’s why I’m writing the way I am. It makes me feel confident, and I want to share that.”
